Close encounter

(May 19th - Oberkommando der Luftwaffe)
(OKL) During a dogfight over Habyes, a BF110 piloted by Jagdflieger Svedala encounter a Spitfire at very close range, but after faling to inflict damage on the Spitfire a hurricane appeared and the spitfire got a clear shot. Lt Xhammerx sent Svedala to the ground and he had to continue the fight on foot. Maj Svedala deployed a Flak 28 battery in Haybes and soon shot down a Spitfire piloted by Sgt Maj Kidd27, over the Armybase.

Death of a Camper

(May 19th - Oberkommando Das Heer)
(OKH) There are those who despite that the game-mechanics makes it possible and CRS doesn't see anything wrong with it, follows some sort of chivalry. You do not stay in a barack at an Armybase and then start killing every infantry that spawns in. All it does is padd stats for one person and kills the game for plenty of others. Giving the opponent no chance to spawn into a building they own just doesn't make any sense.

At Haybes May 19 11:36 Lt Deismaar spawned in and decided not to support his team by holding the Armybase, he just sat down and waited for the Axis to take the town and then when the Axis spawned into their buildings he gave them a burst of SMG fire in the back. He repeated this for ten victims before he was put to death.


The Battle of Liege

(May 15th - Oberkommando das Heer)
(OKH) Major Svedala joined the attack on Liege at 12:06 from the Sprimont-Liege FB. Together with other panzers the small column rushed for the city of Liege and joined up with the forward troops who already secured the east side and the battle for the bridges raged. Svedala headed for the southwest side with his trusty PzKpfw 38(t). Infantry on the site reported that french troops tried to flank with a laffly and tanks to gain hold of the steep hil, supported by several french fmb:s in the river providing fire support. After a short battle the first infantry controlled the steep hill and the panzers could move on the west bridge while Svedala headed to the east armybase to support the bunkerguards.
While the battle of the bridges continued Svedala moved to the north docks where enemy infantry tried to cross the river. Upon arrival several axis infantry was found dead on the riverbed and a few were firing franticlly on the west riverbank where british infantry under the cover of smoke tried to move on the docks. The p38t was a welcome addition and soon begun to suppress the west bank and Luftwaffe kept strafing the area from the west armybase up to the north docks.
The lonely panzer supported by infantry went south and took the bridge over to the west side, while a laffly, smoking, drove like a madman over the bridge passing just a meter from the panzer, a few fireburst accompied the laffly into the small forest south of the docks where it finally was caught up by infantry and destroyed.
The panzer continued the search for enemy infatry and their base on the western bank and managed to dispose of all opposition. Once it was cleared they rushed to support the troops that worked on locking down the west armybase.

The west armybase was a chaotic field of battle with burning hulks and dead bodies everywhere. Slowly the panzers moved in, meter by meter not cutting their engines and keeping the machinguns blazing while infantry secured ahead. While the bunker was beeing captured the panzers gained total control of the enemy held barracks and garage and the soon the axis banner was hoisted over the last armybase of Liege.

The battle continued and a small detachment of panzers and atg:s didn't stop to rearm, they continued west up the hill to secure it and provide cover for the fb busters. While Major Svedala reported five kills, a emfb and daimler included, Kommandeur GreatOne reported that during his two hour long sortie he had killed and destroyed over 40 enemy units

The Heroes of Stenay

(May 13th - Kommandeur Zkai, 7. ID)
Kommandeur Zkai, 7. ID: " The french division raging in the south was on its way toward Stenay. Just another softcap, thats what they thought! A few brave paratroopers and the extraordinary Pilot Toderega decided: NO!"

The City was already under cap and the AB was the last to resist. As we jumped we knew it were seconds away before the bunker would be capped. I came down right infront of the bunker entrance and raised my lmg to clean the bunker. I killed one ei at the murderhole and another one, which was already counting the seconds till he would cap the bunker.
A few others came to aid with the bunker defense as the enemy was spawing through their cps into town. With the help of the pilot Todegera we managed to get a few waves of paras for the help to liberate the town.
While the HC was preparing the assault on other cities, the following stand to resist the enemy in Stenay:
Every enemy entering the bunker found a quick death. After several minutes, we were told to give up Stenay. Most of us brave soldiers died in battle anywayand just mrsnow5 from the 1775th and me stayed alive in the bunker while ei after ei tried to sneak up. We decided to stay untill we would find the heros death. With exceptional precision mrsnow5 mowed down the enemy... till.. till they stopped. No enemy was showing up anymore.

As no enemy showed up anymore we decided, that it was the right decision to liberate this town and not give it up. mrsnow5 brought me out of the bunker and led the way, because I was wounded and almost blind. With my little eyelight I guarded while he took back CP after CP. As it looks we stopped the enemy breakthrough at Stenay and gave HC valuable time to prepare the attack on the french towns. After succesful mission mrsnow5 and me returned to base.

Special thanks to the 1775th for having such a fine soldier like mrsnow5, a very reliable and good soldier!



Major Frogdeth, Das Heer reported on April 18th, 2008: " I must say that was the worst display of driving I ever saw.
This guy tries to camp in a Panhard, get's blown up by an ATG, and then concludes the best thing to do is to come back with another Panhard and park in the exact same place as the last one.
In his desperation to not get killed a second time he actually crashed into a tree not three feet in front of my Pak38 and flipped over, stopping right in front of me. I didn't even have to aim, I just switched to HE, opened fire, and hoped that I wasn't so close to hurt myself in the backblast.
I can't wait for this guy to start driving Sherman76s!
